Join the EMA

New members of the EMA will benefit from the experience and know-how that has been built up over more than two decades. Members are able to raise issues and have them resolved with other industry players, an approach that has benefited all those involved. The EMA can effectively share know-how in areas of common interest such as fighting crime, IT security and promoting good practice. Members can engage with regulators, public institutions, and representatives of consumer bodies on a monthly basis, increasing their understanding of the business environment in which they operate.
